    Hello Mossie,

    just read this entire thread without realising you are from England. That's a great cheap find mate and especially for over here where everything seems overpriced, particularly in junk shops! Well done.

    Hi canti44

    Yes prices have roared since the first M1 I bought in the Eighties,Im not a collector as such,Just a Re-enactor.
    But I am really happy with this and will keep it on a shelf,My son who is now coming into the hobby is learning a few things now as well.

    I would like to thank everyone one this thread,For all their input and help.

    Regards Gary

    I stand corrected. There were other production dates from 1950-1961 and 1961-1965 then 1965-1972. I see why folks tell me not to rely too much on Wikipedia.org. I guess I should stick with the M1917 models which I know a bit better than the M1's.
    M1's are not that difficult, and don't worry about the dodgy info, we all do it on occasion, (just me more than most!) Wikipedia being a problem . We wouldn't learn otherwise.

    Best Regards,

    Andy

    What's funny is I spent 21 yrs. in the Army with the first 7 wearing, using, storing and issuing the M1. It never occured to me about front or rear seams, swivel bale and fixed bales. Tan straps, green ones etc. Now that I am out i'm learning more about it than when I was in. Of the four I salvaged from my days one, a rear seamer has the numbers 7343 stamped inside. The other has 628 stamped also a rear seamer. Any idea of it's era?
